RICOH AFICIO SP C831DN 5599M

 

This printer produces very high quality output. The only reason that I gave it four stars is that while I realize that the toner is expensive, it is the other consumables that get to me. Replacing the fuser and photoconductors adds unseen costs to the...

Not very impressed with the 231n. We standardized on it a couple years ago and now have upwards of 10. Would I get it again? I don't know. A couple things I don't like are the following. They aren't show stoppers but they can be annoying. 1. The web...
